Who is Jorge Cervantes?

Jorge Cervantes is the nom de plume of award-winning author and cannabis cultivator George Van Patten, whose reputation in cannabis circles began to soar in the 1980s. Van Patten took the name of Jorge Cervantes and donned a disguise of black dreadlocks and a beret to conceal his true identity, allowing him to enter various countries to build on his wealth of knowledge. 

Under the Cervantes alias, he started self-publishing books on cannabis cultivation, mainly because most publishers refused to work with him based on the content. Beginning with Indoor Marijuana Horticulture, which ultimately transformed into the more comprehensive Marijuana Horticulture, and went on to sell over a million copies worldwide.

With over 1 million books sold, Jorge has cemented a reputation the best-selling author in the field of cannabis cultivation, having written a series of published works detailing his expertise in many aspects of cultivation including indoor, outdoor and greenhouse growing. His mission is to help growers around the world cultivate higher yields and better-quality cannabis via his celebrated books.
